National Health Service (NHS) & Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG)

Here you will find information and guidance on Health Services within the area.  

Health care services and social care services regularly work together and some services are now integrated, such as the Occupational Therapy and Mental Health teams.

Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) were created following the Health and Social Care Act in 2012, and replaced Primary Care Trusts on 1 April 2013. CCGs are clinically-led statutory NHS bodies responsible for the planning and commissioning of health care services for their local area.

There are two Clinical Commissioning Groups that cover Cheshire West and Chester. Look at their websites to see how you can get involved in decisions made about local health services.

The Cheshire and Wirral Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (CWP) was formed in 2002 and achieved Foundation Trust status in June 2007. The Trust provides mental health, substance misuse, learning disability and community physical health services. These services are provided in partnership with commissioners, local authorities, voluntary and independent organisations, people who use our services and their carers.
